Abstract :

Rheumatic valvular disease is very common in India; even children around adolescents have significant heart problems because of rheumatic valve involvement and require surgeries. We analyzed 120 patients with rheumatic fever (Asymptomatic from patient��?s perspective from age of 10 to 18 years) according to Jone��?s criteria. Out of 120; 80 patients had allergic rhinitis (secondary throat infections-repeated episodes of pharyngitis may be streptococcal leading to rise in ASO titer causing rheumatic disease). Allergic rhinitis if managed early and completely may prevent lots of cases of rheumatic complications as still only symptomatic treatment is offered at many places.
